Popular Mechanics Shop Notes Highlights For 1935 and 36

In these two compilations are a very nice collection of work shop plans, a shop built jointer, some nice sander plans including flexible belt and oscillating spindle sanders, a very nice article on building Windsor chairs and some nice colonial furniture plans, and of course lots of great tips and tricks throughout.

Here is the link for 1935.

And here is the link for 1936.


Hope everyone is enjoying the fireside reading with these articles. But more than that, with a little imagination and modern materials most of these plans and ideas are as useful today as they were back in the 30's.
